3.42/5  rDev -7.6%

Undated bottle at 35 degrees into snifter
Aroma of cherries
Head cold small (<2 cm), fizzy, light brown, gone basically instantly, no layer, no ring
Head warm small (<2 cm), fizzy, light brown, rapidly diminishes to 3 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing none cold; partial waves and small islands of tiny bubbles as it warms
Body pinkish, hazy, sediment in bottle
Flavor actually better when cold – the cherries are more noticeable. As it warms, the flavor becomes more mulled. No hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 3, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5. Final weighted score: 3.425.
The only flavor that actually comes through is cherry which would be OK in a kriek beer, but a Belgium dark ale should have raisin, figs, dates, ie “dark fruits” as well. This isn’t a bad beer but is really more of a kriek beer to me. Was it worth $ 77/ case of 12? Yep.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, cherries, bready malt and spices. Body is full and crisp. Spicy hops, funky yeast, bready malt, brown sugar, minerals and sour cherries fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Enjoyable brew.

3.6/5  rDev -2.7%

Poured from a cork n cage bottle into a goblet.

Pours a dark amber color with a white frothy head that dissipates quickly. Very little head retention and minimal lacing around the glass. Smells of cherries... A lot of cherries...and a little bit of malt. Tastes of ripe cherries and pale crystal malts. Tastes like cherry pie actually with the breadiness from the malt and the cherries. "She's my cherry pie, cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise." Anyhow...mouthfeel is that of a cider. Sweet, with a high acidity and lot of carbonation. It's a pretty decent brew but I think next time I will cellar this one and see what happens as I think it would benefit from aging.

Cheers!

3.51/5  rDev -5.1%

Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. Has a pretty dark amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some cherries, not a lot going on. Taste is tart, some cherries, alcohol is most definitely present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer, but at this price point, I was expecting a little more.
